First of all, thanks for the kind words, they are certainly appreciated.

To the matter at hand, the correct fit for a B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 with an 8' bed is part # BWGNRK1313-5W. This is significant because it will determine where the socket post goes when you are installing the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W.

You correctly cited your gooseneck ball is just forward of the axle, so you would install the Companion # BWRVK3500-5W in "Position 1" as shown in the cut out of the directions I added for you to check out.

Also, you made a great choice with the Companion, as it is considered by many to be the best fifth wheel hitch on the market; just check out the over 400 reviews on the product page, which give it a nearly unanimous 5-star rating.
